The ILCE-9 display may black out for a moment when the NTSC/PAL Selector is set to PAL. This can happen with the viewfinder, LCD screen, or an external monitor connected through an HDMI® cable.
This is not a malfunction. Below are situations where the display may black out:
- When you start or stop recording movies while the shooting mode is set to a mode other than (Movie) or (Slow and Quick).
- When you change the shooting mode from or to another mode.
- When you play a movie for the first time after you switch to the playback mode.
